Christian Louboutin Lova
Time to share some Loubi love and this time I am gushing about the amazing nail lacquers. What I am hoping is a first in a range of many more beauty products - the Christian Louboutin Nail Colours.
So I have been asking for these nail colours all over, from Delhi to Dubai, since I first heard of them. I finally got my hands on these during my recent trip to Paris. I actually waited in a long line of people just to get into the store on Rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré. Never thought I'd ever do that for a Nail Polish but then I am big fan of Christian Louboutin's work and these beauties are inspired by his iconic shoes.
Currently, you have the option of 30 stunning colours that are divided into 3 families of 10 each, The Pops, The Noirs & The Nudes. I just had to get the purple, from the Pops family, called LOVA. It is a bright shade that can be worn throughout the year. In the picture I am wearing only one coat of the nail colour as it already gave the desired rich glossy effect and looked layered. I am not wearing a base coat or top coat.
As you can see the bottle has a tall slender cap and when you use to apply the polish, it feels similar to holding a writing instrument. (I usually don't apply polish myself so I am probably not the best person comment on that). The brush, which is patented, worked smoothly for me without any bubbles.
This nail lacquer is also one of the fastest drying colours that I have worn. Given my impatience, that is a big plus for me. The colour stays on evenly and appears saturated. It hasn't gotten any chips even on the third day.
The beautiful packaging aside, I am really happy with the product and can't wait to wear the other shades. Keep watching this space to know which other colours I bought as each one of these babies deserves their own post. :-)
